Umass vs. Temple Betting Pick

March 09, 2012

Temple Basketball

Atlantic 10 Conference University of Massachusetts will visit the Temple Owls in a March 9 matchup. The Minutemen from UMass finished tied for fifth in the conference with three other teams. The Owls won the regular season conference title with a 24-6 record overall and a 13-3 conference record.

The Owls have played well all season and have outscored their opponents by an average of 6.5 points per game. UMass has also done well this season posting a 21-10 overall record and a 9-7 conference record. They have outscored their opponents by a 5-point average.

The Owls have one player, Scootie Randall who has an injured knee and is out indefinitely. The Minutemen have two players, Sampson Carter and Cady Lalanne, who are also out indefinitely with foot injuries. Temple leads the head to head matchup 7-3 SU over the last 10 games the two have played. Temple is also 13-1 SU over their last 14 games. The Owls also have played well of late against UMass, as they are 5-1 SU over the last six games between the two schools.

This season the two met just once and the Owls defeated the Minutemen in a close game 90-88. Temple failed to cover a 12-point favorite spread. The total was OVER as the line was 150 and the total was 178. Leading up to the game UMass is 3-2 SU in their last five games with two consecutive victories. Temple was 4-1 SU in their last five games prior to the tournament with their only blemish against St. Joseph’s.

The Owls are much more talented than the Minutemen are.  Their tough defense should be able to shut down the UMass offense. Sharp money takes the Owls less the point spread. The total will pay out to those placing smart money on the OVER.
